I've found that the true subject of my work is the interaction between the paint and the artist. The imagery in the work serves as the armature for the paint to be sculpted around. Paint shares a great deal with sculpture in that it wants to be pushed and dragged into shape until it creates not only the illusion of dimension, but an actual physical surface that tells it's own story. The mystery of why the art was made holds some interest to me, but the mystery of how the art was made is what keeps me looking indefinitely. I've begun to think that this is one of the truths of being a painter. A painting is not an image, but a physical record of how the material and the hand come together to create a personal account of the artist's world.
